A picture on the Clearwater Police Department’s Facebook page from Wednesday is getting a lot of attention.
It shows two officers smiling and posing with a beachgoer wearing what appears to be a hairkini. Apparently, it’s all the rage with male tourists and locals alike.

In simplest terms, it’s a bikini “top” styled from chest hair.
The FB post’s caption: “Talk about a hairy situation and a sign that spring break has officially arrived on America’s No. 1 beach — Pennsylvania man sports hair bikini to bring smiles to the faces of many. It worked — as you can see with Cpl. Giordano and Officer Perez.”
Clearwater Police asks followers to come up with their own captions for the picture with the unidentified South Florida visitor.
“Clearwater’s Finest thought it was just another day in paradise; then things got hairy...”
“We’ve been on Gilligan’s Island too long.”
“If you have kids, this could be you when you nap on the beach.”
“Two men and a bearded lady???”
The fashion statement is nothing new.
Long live the hairkini?
